One of the Coercive Acts of 1774, the Boston Port Act, closed Boston Harbor until the East India Company could be compensated for its cargo lost in the Boston Tea Party (1873).

However, of greater impact was that the Massachusetts Government Act placed all appointments to positions in the colonial government in the hands of the colonial governor or the king.
